The fundamental problem for the Right when it comes to tax cuts, is that once they take the top tax rate off, it’s pure gravy.
Under National, your average tax payer will get around $800 per year.
Chris Luxon will get $18 000.
Poor people are poor, they aren’t stupid!
They see the $800 they get and the $18000 Chris gets and they say, ‘Fuck off’.
The CTU has been roused out of their slumber by doing some actual economic work instead of denouncing protests (I know – a Union denouncing protests – don’t even start me) and their numbers on where National’s tax cuts are going are devastating to National.
$6Billion in National’s tax cuts will go to the the richest 5% while the vast majority of workers will get $2 per week.
How the fuck does $6billion to the richest 5% help anyone with the cost of living crisis?
All National want to do is protect their rich mates by giving them billions in tax cuts while the rest of us can barely rub two coins together for a side order of fries.
This isn’t an economic plan, it’s economic sadism!
Billions to the richest won’t make NZ a better place – why should the 5% richest get huge tax cuts that will come at the expense of public education, public health and public housing?
Chris can flip as many burgers as he likes to pretend that he’s down with the bottom feeders the question is are you honestly stupid enough as a voter to give him and his rich mates billions in tax cuts?
I appreciate Covid has hurt us, and I appreciate that many former Labour voting males have walked away in disgust at the woke madness, but don’t pretend that voting National is a solution to being pissed off with Labour because an ACT/National Government will only make inequality immeasurably worse in this country.
Don’t buy Chris’s de-unionised Happy Meal, it’s poison.
